Luftwaffe LKpW101 Winter Flying Helmet

By Siemens. Size 58. Standard winter pattern helmet from the 101 series. Has the usual lambswool lining. The brown goatskin leather is in excellent supple condition. All but one of the straps are good and the buckles have only light corrosion in places. The strap that runs front to back on the crown of the helmet for the oxygen mask suspension \'hook\' is a bit fragile and part of the adjuster buckle is missing (see photo). The lining is very good but the forehead chamois is quite rubbed and partially unstitched at the back (see photo). The avionics are complete with the longer type wiring loom, oval Mi4b carbon type throatmicrophones and four-pole break coupling. Also fitted with receivers and plastic \'soundboards\' - the latter showing damage (see photos). Labelled. A very nice helmet overall and an excellent display piece. Stock code H16159.
